What is Tag Rugby?
Tag Rugby is a game played by teams of seven players. Each player wears a belt that has two velcro tags attached to it.

Following the Tag Challenge, Community Rugby Coach Ben Smiley told wasps.co.uk, "We were really pleased to have so many young rugby players taking part in our Tag Challenge this weekend. For many of them, it would have been their first experience of professional rugby and they picked an incredibly exciting game to watch and met London Wasps' Tom Varndell and Victor Gresev. Hopefully, the never say die attitude of the London Wasps team will motivate the young players to always keep trying, and to never give up."
